MASVINGO – A 30-year-old Zaka woman allegedly disappeared with a four-month-old baby boy after lying to the mother that she wanted to take a walk with the toddler but never returned. Police have since launched a manhunt for Tariro Mahokorasha who went to an unknown destination with the baby boy strapped on her back.
The incident occurred at Tarusenga Village under Chief Bota in Zaka.
National police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said they were still looking for Mahokorasha.
